Doctors’ conference to hear “future of medicine is pro-life”

Abortion pill reversal

A doctors’ conference scheduled for Dublin tomorrow will hear that ‘The Future of Medicine is Pro-Life’ as speakers address initiatives such as abortion pill reversal, and legal and medical advocacy for pregnant women and their babies.

Dr Calum Miller, a medical Doctor and ethicist will address the ethical issues around abortion at a time when there appears to be an increase in medical professionals seeking to opt out of abortion internationally.
Well-known cardiologist, Dr Dermot Kearney, will speak about abortion pill reversal (APR), which has been sought by women who have taken a first abortion pill but then change their mind and seek to have the effect of the pill reversed.

The Irish-born consultant started providing APR treatment – for free – after connecting with a pro-life organisation and witnessing a significant demand from women experiencing regret after taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone.

Dr Kearney has said that providing APR therapy has been ‘the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done’. Dr Kearney was the subject of a complaint by abortion providers to the General Medical Council (GMC) in Britain but the case was dropped after no evidence was subsequently found to back the charges against the doctor.

Abortion Pill Reversal involves administering progesterone after the first abortion pill has been taken  – which helps to undo the effect of mifepristone and can help to ensure the unborn child survives.

The Daily Mail said that Dr Kearney had helped 32 women reverse the effect of the first abortion pill, and said that for the women the paper spoke to he “became a saviour to them and their babies”.

The conference will also hear from Ms Lois McLatchie of legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, and from Peadar Tobin, TD, the leader of Aontu
“It will be an opportunity for fellow pro-life health professionals to listen and meet fellow pro life medics/ activists/ politicians and discuss how medicine can reflect a culture of life in Ireland going forward,” Doctors for Life said in a statement.
